I got up at 5:30 this Am and met my pal Nancy for an early morning painting session.
We were lucky- the clouds lifted and we caught some nice light. It hard to choose what to paint- I figured I would portray the space between these houses- and the car that was there drove away as I was painting it.
I whipped this off quickly- I kept thinking about the breakfast we were going to get at the Sands End cafe across the street.
Later, at work, I prepared for a painting lesson that I am planning for campers visiting the museum on Friday. I am showing the middle school age kids (from Camp Wing in Duxbury ) the American paintings in the gallery and doing a short demo. I will give them each a primed panel and 3 acrylic colors ( yellow, red and blue) and white -and hopefully they will successfully paint a landscape.
Heres the inspiration from our collection
This is my painting of the garage at the museum using the three colors and white.
How can I not love a job that makes me have to do a painting?
I plan on doing another one tomorrow!
One last thing- my stepmother in Hawaii sent this- it is VERY worth watching!
All about fitting creativity into our lives- so fitting...click
